Canterbury’s Four Toms
In 2015 my friend Joseph Pearce and I led a memorable pilgrimage to England to pray at the shrines of the English martyrs and the graves of the greatest literary figures. We packed an enormous amount into ten days, and I will always remember Joseph huddling with me in the priest hole at Oxborough Hall and singing the Salve Regina.
One of our visits was to Canterbury Cathedral, and on the bus journey from London I gave a talk on Canterbury’s Three Toms. They are St. Thomas a Becket, St Thomas More, T.S.Eliot and Thomas Cranmer.
How are they linked?
